Dis-Carnage #1 (June 2013)

Dis-Carnage #1 (June 2013)
36 pg, A5, xerox, Malay

Disobeyed, Deathevoker, Desultory, Rotten Disease, Derangement Project Production, Interment

A debut issue from Sabah. A good debut issue I must say in terms of layout although 8 pages or more are filled with flyers only. The pages are numbered and have TOC. The xerox quality can be better. The layout is in cut n paste style which is one of the best I seen so far because using lots of pictures for the background. The text print looks like it being printed by dot matrix printer but not sure whether the editor intends it to be that way. The interviews are rather short (10+ questions each bands). This issue features some of the current good Malaysian bands so probably some in-depth or more questions can be asked to them will be better. Only Interment interview is in English, the rest are in Malay including Desultory (because this is the Malaysian one). The reviews are not rated not alphabetically arrange and separated to 2 parts. "Rot Review Part 1" covers all audio formats and zine and Part 2 features only stuff produced by SABBAT (Japan).

Mine hand-numbered #49.

If not mistaken, the editor also plays in a band. You can ask about this when contacting them. The zine is being sold at a low price so please buy a copy and support!
